Before we get started I wanna let you know that these are not the top 100 most used words in English. These are the most important words. There is a man named IA Richards, he was a rhetorician, which means it was his job to be a speaker, be eloquent. He is a professor of words we could say. He decided that these 100 words were the most important in the English language for two reasons. Let's talk about the first one. The first reason is because they cover topics that we often talk about. They're probably the most used topics. A lot of these words are nouns or verbs. They're descriptive. They're not prepositions. If you are interested in the most common words in the English language, those are going to be more prepositions or articles like the, have, an, but these are important words, so they're going to be descriptive. We talk about these topics often. The second reason is because we need to use these words when we're describing other concepts, so if you don't know a word in English and you're trying to describe what that word is, you're going to need to use these words to describe other concepts. As you can see, they're really valuable. They're invaluable, in fact. Take today to pronounce them correctly. Follow my speaking. Follow my pronunciation. I'm an American, so I'm going to use American English pronunciation. I hope it will be useful to you. Are you ready to get started? Use those muscles. I'm going to pronounce them first clearly, and then second, I'm going to say a short sentence which is going to use them pretty fast. You're going to hear the version that you would hear in a conversation, so maybe some letters are reduced or linked or cut out. You might hear a difference between the two, but I want to make sure that you can hear the clear pronunciation and also the sentence, daily conversation style, pronunciation. Use both of them.

Thanks for pronouncing these words with me. I hope that it was useful to you and you said them out loud. If there's any of these words that you don't know, you don't know what they mean, you've never heard them before, take some time to look them up. Write them in a vocabulary notebook. Take some time to learn them. This is a great introduction to some important words in English. You might have noticed that there are 103 words on this list, not 100, and I thought it was an interesting point because IA Richards, the man who made this list, he said that he wants readers to decide which words are not important. Which three words should we cut out from this list? There's not an exact 100 words, but it's always changing and evolving. It's just an interesting point that he made, so I hope that you could practice your pronunciation today. Let me know in the comments which words are new to you. Can you make sentences using these words? This is a good starting point to learning new vocabulary. Hearing it first, then pronouncing it. Making a sentence with it. Trying to repeat it and use it as much as you can. Thanks so much for pronouncing with me today and have a wonderful day. I'll see you the next time. Bye.
